Matt Griffo Privilege 

Ignorance is bliss And in this song I'll reminisce About the joy that privilege can bring Because I am white And that line made your butt cheeks tight The authority thinks it's the holy grail To be a cis white male To all my brothers all my white, straight Super not gay brothers Who see a cop and roll your eyes or smile and wave hello Well not everyone feels that way If you're female, Muslim, black, or gay Or trans or Mexican or any shade of brown You might feel an eerie dread That you might wind up shot or dead Especially if you are in the nicest part of town G Gaug EmGaug Privilege, this is privilege CM7 To claim all lives matter equally Eb7 (Except for maybe refugees) Privilege, that's called privilege The KKK has lynching sprees But they've never done anything to me GDaug/F# D#maug D#dim so I'm pretty sure that everyone is fine G Privilege, that's called privilege By not helping out the others We help out those straight white brothers Privilege that’s called privilege They say they’re treated differently But no one experiences things different from me BRIDGE B Who cares? B/D# CM7 It doesn't affect me GF6 Who cares about climate change Em CM7 I mean science is fake anyway Who cares? It doesn't affect me But you better not get a tan Or you won't be let in the clan Who cares? It doesn't affect me Jesus Christ was clearly white And he hated those sodomites Cm7 (Those sexy sodomites) CHORUS Privilege, that is privilege Walking at night without fear Is easier when you're not queer Privilege, that's called privilege go through life with naïveté But compared to them you're higher paid OUTRO GEaug/C No one will share this song EmC9 Because ignorance is bliss GEaug/C AmEb G But privilege is a quietly potent thing that you can miss
